About the Innovation Hub

Covered from floor to ceiling in whiteboards, the Innovation Hub provides students with ample room to dream big, new ideas and create plans to make those ideas happen. The space also allows students the room and tools they need to prototype and build creative projects and features equipment that includes a ShopBot 3D wood router, Epilog Laser engraver, 3D printers, a vinyl cutter, and a variety of hand tools, among other equipment. A safety and training program educates users on how to utilize equipment. A revamped 15,000 sq. ft. warehouse space outfitted with prototyping equipment, as well as cool and funky furniture is a unique space in our Technology Center building that opened in 2012 and continues to be enhanced and remodeled to meet student collaboration needs.
